Codd-neck bottle (bottle)

New Acquisitions


Codd bottles were glass bottles designed for the storage of fizzy drinks. Their characteristic feature is the pinched neck, which trapped a marble of glass; these replaced the use of cork stoppers which tended to loosen when dried out. Codd bottles remained in use until the 1930s. This bottle would have probably contained sparkling water.
